PMID:  8309857     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Acute myocardial infarction is difficult enough to manage without the complications that commonly occur in the first days and weeks that follow. This article covers the most frequent complications, outlining when they are likely to occur, what the symptoms are, how they are best treated, and what sort of prognosis can be expected. In this way, the author provides a "map" of the days after infarction, showing the pitfalls and sand traps of clinical management.
